Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Nikon P300 is 25g lighter than the Nikon S30 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of S30, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to P300.
